Crafting Opportunities To Benefit Hospice Patients
Ascend hospice is seeking out individuals or groups with sewing and crafting talents in the extended KC metro area. Many of the over 300 hospice patients we currently serve would greatly benefit from from the loving touch of hand made blankets, fidget lap blankets (tactile stimulation and distraction for dementia patients), and neck pillows for support. Please reach out if you are interested in more information about volunteering for Ascend.
For information on training and support services available, please contact our office and ask to speak with our Volunteer Coordinator, 913-257-5678
